I just received the HTC One X from AT&T. How can I select multiple photos in the Gallery?

Have you tried long-pressing (tap and hold) on an individual photo? On the vanilla Gallery that will enable multi-select mode. –  eldarerathis May 10 '12 at 21:18
@eldarerathis That doesn't actually work. –  DavidYell May 14 '12 at 9:58

My experience of the One X in order to be able to select multiple items in the gallery you need to first give it a task to do.

For example,

  • Open Gallery
  • Hit 'Share' in the bottom left, you'll need a service which takes multiple uploads, such as Facebook
  • Then you'll see the 'multi-select' grid with tick boxes next to each image which you can then select.

As far as I can see from playing on my device for 10 minutes, there isn't a general 'multi-select' feature. You might try a different gallery app though. I would recommend QuickPic
